Elements of Reflection 5: An outcome – Why ICT is different?

ICT and Pedagogy interconnects teaching and learning. While writing with a pen and paper allows me to quickly jot down notes, reminders and shopping lists; I now prefer to use my Iphone as this enables me to share things with my husband or other family members. This technology saves time. My iPhone conveniently stores everything on one device that I can carry everywhere.

In my first year of university, I spent a moderate sum of money purchasing stationary and lined exercise books to take down notes and write draft copies of my assignments. I soon realised that this was painful and unnecessary for the most part. I was straining my writing hand, wrist, arm, shoulders, neck and back which forced me to seek regular treatment from my chiropractor and massage therapist. I realised that I could and should have been using my computer to do everything. Similarly to https://kristensmith1.wordpress.com/ “…ICT has made reading and writing so much easier, faster and engaging than ever before…”

As https://dayna23.wordpress.com/2016/03/04/what-is-ict/ shared, ICT (information and communications technology – or technologies) is an umbrella term that includes any communication device or application, encompassing: radio, television, cellular phones, computer and network hardware and software, satellite systems and so on, as well as the various services and applications associated with them, such as videoconferencing and distance learning”.

As a university student, I love that we can save unfinished work and resume at any time. We can back up our work regularly and make changes and improvements to assignments efficiently without scrunching it up and starting over again. Technologies are constantly advancing for our benefit and I am excited to learn more throughout EDC1300 ICT and Pedagogy.
